Pull-Ups Diapers

Last month I started talking about potty training tips and becoming a Pull-Ups ‘First Flush’ Ambassador. Since starting to potty train my two year old, things have slowed down a little. Each day is different. Some days he doesn’t want to wear Pull-Ups at all, other days he doesn’t have an accident. I am staying patient and letting him go at his own pace. When my three year old started potty training last year, nothing seemed to work and one day he just decided he was ready and it happened almost over night (or so it seemed). So I believe the same can happen this time. When he does use the potty, we still celebrate each flush with a high five, lots of praise, and sometimes a sticker. Positive encouragement goes a long way!

Pull-Ups Celebration in NYC Times Square

Tuesday, January 29th, Pull-Ups is throwing a larger than life potty training celebration in Times Square. They want to help parents and their little ones kick off their potty training journey. The event will include a huge potty, live performers, and a light-up billboard celebration. I think it is awesome to have the little ones with a lot of fellow potty potty training kids for a larger than life party!

Walgreens Night at the W Tim Gunn Beauty Tips

I have always been a HUGE fan of Fashion Consultant, Tim Gunn.  He knows best when he says you don’t have to spend a fortune to get your own “red carpet ready” look. On behalf of Walgreens, Tim offers these great tips and tricks:

  • Get a Camera-Ready Smile: A bright white smile is absolutely necessary whether you’re walking the red carpet or the runway.  A simple tip I tell all the runway models is use something like a Crest Whitestrips.  There’s this 2 hour treatment you can put on when you are getting ready.
  • Get Ready for Your Close-Up:  When it comes to facial hair removal, there’s nothing to be ashamed of, and there’s everything to gain.   Olay has something new that is perfect for this and because it’s from Olay you know your skin will look fabulous!
  • Every day is a new chance for you to “walk the runway,” so I like to encourage woman to try new things whether it be a new lipstick or nail color.
  • Some of the most stunning looks I have seen lately are topped off with healthy-thick hair.  Not every woman has thick hair and as women age their hair tends to thin.  There is a new hair thickening product on the market from Pantene that will give you that gorgeous hair
  • To keep your skin glowing, it is important to stay hydrated by using a good moisturizer and drinking lots of water. And you can make your features pop with the right makeup and brightest smile.

When Elmo gets his furry fingers on Abby Cadabby’s magic wand, there’s something in the air – and Sesame Street becomes a nonstop, all-singing, all-dancing musical montage! Grover and Baby Bear sing their highs and lows, Cookie Monster sings fast and slow, Bert and Ernie converse in song and Murray makes mouth music for all to sing along! Learn why it feels good to sing a song, but why it feels good to stop, too! What will Elmo learn about the power of musical magic? Join the conga line of fun to find out!
